What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level networking professional who earns this ultimate recognition by completing rigorous examinations given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most sophisticated issues surrounding computer network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate freely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining software patches to correct bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their skills are not readily accessible to the general public.

For companies in North Dakota, Progent can provide easy, fast, and economical remote access to Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious classification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex problems surrounding network topology, configuration, optimization, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to correct problems. Progent can provide prompt online access to a CCIE so that you are able to get timely help for complex network problems that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support engineers can link to your network via state-of-the-art remote support tools to provide quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of urgent network problems.
